Belgrade, Montana, is a town of fewer than 10,000 residents located at the center of the Gallatin Valley. Between the location, the price point, and the access to the outdoors, Belgrade has a little bit of everything to offer.
The Benefits of Belgrade
As property values in the Gallatin Valley have skyrocketed in recent years, Belgrade has become a local gem. From this prime location, you have all the advantages of being close to everything, while retaining a taste of luxury at a more accessible price point, along with that small-town feel that drew you to Montana in the first place.
Historic Aesthetic Meets Modern Convenience
Historically, Belgrade has been an agricultural town. Today, it offers convenient access to all of the Gallatin Valley, while still holding on to that authentic feel and connection to the land. You may be seeking to escape the daily grind, but the first settlers in Belgrade were beating a retreat from the unrest caused by the Civil War. They found a home here amidst the mountains, and it’s clear why they loved the wide-open spaces that would come to be known as Big Sky Country.
Even as the town stays in touch with its roots, modern additions keep the area developing. New construction in the Prescott Ranch neighborhood holds on to that classic look with exteriors in traditional, craftsman and farmhouse styles while incorporating every modern convenience from top-of-the-line appliances to A/C and high-end finishings.
Small-town Atmosphere with More Amenities
With major supermarkets like Town & Country and Albertsons that sit right in town, convenience isn’t too far away. You’re also only 15 minutes from more shopping options in Bozeman, including some of the big box stores. It’s relaxing to know you don’t have to go very far from home to pick up last-minute milk for your coffee, Sunday donuts, or eggs for breakfast.
When it comes to dining out, you can take full advantage of Downtown Bozeman’s vast array of options in dining and drinks, or opt for Belgrade’s offerings of breweries and restaurants in the cozy downtown area. You’ll find restaurants featuring global cuisine, on top of the American comfort-food staples.
As the fourth-largest city in Montana, Bozeman combines the best in mountain charm and amenities. With a booming population and lots going on, it’s great to be near Bozeman. Living in Belgrade gives the benefit of being close by without the drawback of rush-hour traffic and summer tourism surges.
The first national park in the United States is well worth a visit, and living just an hour and a half from the Gardiner entrance gives you the flexibility to experience the park the way the bison do. When you live nearby, you’re not limited to visiting when you can afford to get time off. You can head there for a weekend or a day trip, taking advantage of good weather in shoulder seasons to avoid crowds and scope out plenty of wildlife.
Skiing, snowboarding, snowmobiling, hiking, fishing, climbing, caving, and more all are all at your doorstep in Belgrade. Take to the slopes at Bridger Bowl or Big Sky, or pack some snowshoes and go for a wintery walk. In summer, the river miles are yours to float, and you’ll need new boots for all the trails to tread. If you love fresh air, mountain views, and easy access to every outdoor sport imaginable, there’s no place to be but Belgrade.
